Yes, you read correctly. Our favorite silent hero, Link, would soon be fighting Ganon on a big screen. And it looks like this movie is in the right hands too, as Illumination seems to be already doing a great job with Super Mario Bros. IP.

Now we cannot help but wonder which game would they be taking the most inspiration from. We would love to see Legend of Zelda Wind Waker get some love.

We would not even mind seeing Breath of the Wild’s work recreated for the big screen either.

Another question that arises is of the actors. We do not know what actors would we see portraying various game characters in the movie. Of course, Link never speaks in these games, but like Mario, movies would have a speaking Link.

If there is any ground to these rumors, I bet we would soon get these questions answered in the coming months.
